ADCET Webinar: Access Plans for VET Educators Professional Learning Resources
This session explores the free, nationally developed Access Plans for VET Educators Professional Learning Resources available on ADCET. Showcasing the comprehensive and adaptable suite of resources, our presenters will demonstrate how they can be accessed and contextualised for your audience.
The resources support the facilitation of up to two-hour professional learning session for VET Educators to develop an understanding of their roles and responsibilities when developing and implementing Access Plans. The aim is to develop a broader and deeper understanding of reasonable adjustments and the range of resources and supports available. This understanding will improve confidence in VET Educator professional conversations, strengthen student engagement and self-management of their individual plans.
This webinar is aimed at equity, student services and disability practitioners, as well as organisational development staff within the VET sector who provide professional learning for VET Educators.
